The Notorious B.I.G.'s Life Celebrated On Rapper's 42nd Birthday

Jermaine Dupri, Funk Volume, XXL, SKEE and Chase N. Cashe are among those wishing The Notorious B.I.G. a happy birthday.

The Notorious B.I.G. was born May 21, 1972. The rapper, who died March 9, 1997, would have been 42 years old today.

Many Rap acts, personalities and brands have shared their love for Biggie today, celebrating the rapper's life and legacy. 

Funk Volume's official Facebook page, for instance, addressed the late emcee's birthday.

"Damn, Biggie would have been 42 today," Funk Volume says in a statement on its page. "Would have been interesting to see how Hip Hop would have evolved if we didn't lose so many greats at an early age." 

XXL also posted a birthday wish for Biggie today.

"XXL wishes Big Poppa a happy birthday, as he would have been 42 today," the site says. "Rest in peace."

    Before he died him along with Nas and Jay Z were in an article about the king of New York City crown. After he died Puffy gave him the crown posthumously. Everyone knows that Nas had the crown until The Blueprint and got it back after Ether.

      Biggie didn't lie about his past jobs to his fans and he never put hand cuffs on no real niggas and locked them in a cell. Biggie never searched drug dealers anuses for the coke he rapped about selling.

      While Biggie was rapping about being a fake drug lord and crime boss. Seems like they're the same kinda frauds, huh?
